RedRose fishing for a bit of flattery. Maybe she's a high maintenance girl that thinks she is low maintenance.

Haha! Very Happy Very Happy

Absolutely! I was expecting another answer, but he let me down Confused I thought all boys loved skinny girls so I asked him if I looked fat. later he told me that he liked chubby girls. "you know what? I have trouble dealing with a pile of bones, they are very tough and hard. girls are supposed to be soft and tender, so chubby girls are lovely!" said he.

Yes, I have. and I've also heard a saying:"you won't treasure what you already have." you see, I have curves, so I want something else that I don't have Very Happy but now I changed my mind, curses are more precious. Very Happy

That's absolutely right! We never value what we have, we always have to think of what we don't have! Evil or Very Mad

She is not thinking it. Laughing (correct me if I'm wrong) She always knows she is the best of the best and she is proud of herself. People who don't know that they are very good will rather hide their disadvantages.
So she knows that she is high maintenance, but why does she say such things?

Because there is another one who behaves in the same way Laughing

Admiral is right. I am confident and easygoing Very Happy But when Turtle comes to me, I immediately become a high maintenance woman Laughing

When Dixie talks with me, I immediately become a pushover. Laughing

Turtle can offer a perfect explanation of high maintenance. not only because he is an English speaker, but also he has a great collection of high maintenance women. Laughing

My explanation is: high maintenance= hard to get along with; demanding.

I don't know if it makes sense.

oh I see! It's a woman who wants a lot of effort and money from you, for example she needs you buy this and that
